In an effort to level the playing field for honest Partners, Microsoft pursues software pirates relentlessly – even to the ends of the earth. On October 21, Microsoft announced the results of the first-ever Global Anti-Piracy Day, its joint education and enforcement efforts in as many as 49 countries around the globe (including 20 lawsuits in the United States alone). This simultaneous action draws much needed attention to the problem – and turns up the heat on software pirates. Learn more about Global Anti-Piracy Day.
When piracy goes global, Microsoft follows.
As pirates find new ways to reach across international borders, Microsoft continues to step up efforts to combat them. Hard disk loading, counterfeiting, mislicensing and the like are a growing threat to honest system builders’ ability to compete fairly – here and around the world. In cooperation with government and law enforcement, Microsoft intends to let pirates know that borders can’t protect them.
The facts are your best defense against piracy.
Microsoft has just announced 20 new channel lawsuits – thanks to help from you. So know the facts and how to tell when software is not legit. And if you encounter pirated software, please report it. Let’s continue to protect customers and make competition fair for honest resellers. Report piracy anonymously by calling
